Saw that Al Franken just announced that he is running for senator from Minnesota. Kind of surprising since he is my neighbor on 81st and Riverside Drive, just around the corner from that fine lutefisk establishment, Zabar’s. In fact, I ran into Al just the other day and he said he couldn’t stop and talk because he was rushing to get a haircut. Guess he feels he is good enough for the people of Minnesota but a Minneapolis haircut is not good enough for him. That New York haircut looked great in his announcement!
